After much deliberation...
I’ll sail Turkey and Georgia as far towards Russia as I can get, but without pushing against the flow of politics. Then I’ll look to “close the loop” by making it back to where I started in north Norway, by bicycle.
Updated plan details AND a white Christmas. Really getting into the festive spirit now...'Tis the season to indulge, in Turkish rock. Not a good look! Sunset was better. Happy Christmas everyone :)New sail arrived. Run out of Greece. Turkey tomorrow.
= Whoooah! WTF is that big scary thing on beach?? After (to other dogs)
= Hey! Stay TF away from my windsurf!!Yoghurt! Flamingo flavour. Cold nights, slow days, lots of kindness, and a coastline to enjoy these last 100 miles of Greece.Single digit mileage brings compensations. Still chipping away...Mt Athos the last finger. Worst 'port' ever (=a cave). Next day swell and yuk. Coastguard  came and said OK to stay at monastery. Night with the monks. About to set sail again :)Sunset arrival on middle finger of Halkidiki.  Unexpected honey delivery. Draining off the best bit for breakfast.  Only a litre to go...Pic of last night's sail bivvy camp spot. Today paddled away, and the Aegean soon became plenty uncomfortable. Very light headwind. Slog. Imagining roast dinners... Last few miles difficult indeed with horribly crossed swells. Reward for efforts a town with harbour for easy landing and - at last! - a taverna open and serving food!
Tough day, and new holes in sail from efforts, but also received news that a replacement Severne Turbo GT sail will be built to complete the remainder of the expedition. In the meantime I'll keep looking after this one, and hope it does the same for me.
